Cratus Waxed Chain
UPDATED BLEND FROM JULY 2020 BASED ON INTERNAL DRIVETRAIN TESTING.
High performance waxed chain. Available in multiple different models.
Searching for those final few watts for your upcoming time trial, triathlon, road race or track race? A WattShop #Cratus waxed chain saves 1-1.5% of your total power output, typically 3-5 watts for most riders.
Each chain undergoes a 3 stage ultrasonic cleaning process before being ultrasonically bathed in a paraffin wax and a unique Cratus blend, after which it is dusted with PTFE powder to reduce drivetrain friction yet further. The result is ultra-high drivetrain performance for around 400km, after which the chain will need rewaxing to maintain its peak performance.
All KMC and Shimano 11 speed chains come supplied with either a Shimano or KMC removable split link depending on the chain ordered. All Shimano 10 speed chains are supplied with a connector pin.
